The 2013 MTV Video Music Award Nominees were just posted online, and The Weeknd and XO got two nominations, both for the Wicked Games music video. Lamar instagramed a photo of one of Hyghly and Abel's nomination for best visual effects. We don't know much about the other videos nominated for best visual effects, but The Weeknd's chances of winning Artist To Watch are high. We expect The Weeknd and XO to attend the VMA's, seeing as the VMA's are two days before the scheduled release date for Kiss Land!
Watch the VMA's on MTV - Sunday, August 25th at 9pm ET/PT
